will be more of an attack. the clip you played was the language that biden used about romney embracing ryan and that gets to my earlier point about this is that campaign where the democratic ticket is running as much against the vice president's policy views as they are running against the republican nominee. i think you caught what joe was talking about. they want to hone on the paul ryan budget. social security, medicare and drive the point this week. senior political reporter for political tow is work available online at "politico".com. thank you very being with us. >> thank you. steve. >>> richard is benedetto professor at the american university here in washington, d.c. joins us from florida is robert wattson a professor from the lynn university which is hosting the final presidential debate later this month. thank you for being with us. >> pleasure. >> i want to begin with you. do vice president debates matter. >> yeah. if i can go back. i liked johnathan's comments. i would simply add to the vice presidential prep or the prosecutable prep for the debates they try to recreate the actu

's case to make the point that the democrats argue that ryan and romney disagree on some issues and that's what they really want to highlight. >> obviously there's some big differences between these two men. political affiliation as side, there's also the issue of age. >> right. this is interesting how this will cut. mr. ryan is a young man, vigorous 42-year-old. mr. biden is about 70 and you don't want to look like you're beating up on an old man, but you also don't want to look like you are condescending to the young man. it's a difficult balance for both. biden had to deal with the same thing with sarah palin four years ago trying to look respectful even though she was much younger, same deal here. >> you would think going into this vice president biden would have an advantage with foreign policy, but recent events have kind of toppled that a bit. >> that's right. biden spent years on the senate foreign polices committee and you think he would go with his line we killed osama bin laden and saved gm, but they have this real problem in libya, what happened with our embassy, was security
